When our lives are shaped by gratitude, we’re more likely to notice the goodness and beauty in everyday things.

We are content; we feel blessed and are eager to confer blessing. We are able to delight in the very existence of another human being. In a grateful community, individuals and their contributions are acknowledged and honored, and there is regular testi­mony to God’s faithfulness, through which the community experiences the joys of its members.

Expressions of gratitude help make the commu­nity alive to the Word, the Spirit, and God’s work.
